Audio Descriptionicons-disability-audio-described-white

Audio Description provides information about the visual elements of a production. The description is delivered live, in-between dialogue and picked up through headsets, giving access to visually impaired audiences.

A Introductory Notes MP3 is sent out in advance and will be available on this page of the website to listen to or download. The Introductory Notes are also delivered live before the performance begins.
